Broken Hill City Council has taken out two awards at the 2022 Statewide Mutual Risk Management Excellence Awards (RMEA).
The awards acknowledge excellence by NSW Councils in managing workplace risk, with 113 Councils in attendance at this year’s competition.
Broken Hill received the Innovation Award and the Overall Award in the categories for Councils with a population less than 30,000.
Council’s entry focused on the integration of IAM OMNI intelligent software to revolutionise its approach to asset management and its inherent risks.
Council’s General Manager, Jay Nankivell said the award was testament to how far Council has come in regard to managing its assets and risk.
“This award is the result of a great combined effort between our Risk and Asset teams,” he said.
“Through the integration of leading technology we have greatly improved knowledge of our assets, their lifecycle, and the associated risks they pose.
“We now have far more accurate data regarding our assets, and this in turn allows us to make more informed decisions around the city’s infrastructure.
“Everyone involved should be commended for improving Council’s operations, and securing these awards amongst a very competitive field.”
